Seven Days of Infamy : Pearl Harbor Across the World (Hardcover) (Nicholas Best)
about this item
December 7, 1941: one of those rare days in world history when a truly global event forever altered the future that followed. From Ronald Reagan in Hollywood to Mahatma Gandhi in India, people all over the world remembered exactly where they were, what they were doing, and how they felt when they heard the news of Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor.
In Nicholas Best’s second detailed history of World War II, the stories of the momentous attack and its global repercussions are related in tense, dramatic style. But Best doesn't stop there. Instead, the accomplished historian takes readers on an unprecedented journey inside the days surrounding the attack, providing a snapshot of figures around the world during one of the most extraordinary weeks in history—from Ernest Hemingway on the road in Texas to Jack Kennedy playing touch football in Washington; Mao Tse-tung training his forces in Yun’an and the Jews in the Warsaw ghetto cheering as Adolf ****** declared war on the United States.
With its up-close-and-personal perspective, Seven Days of Infamy is unlike any other Pearl Harbor book and is sure to appeal to a wide audience.
